Tonight is my third and last post on Valentine’s for the year. No more for 2011. What else can I write about when the day we have been looking forward to (or dreading) has finally arrived? I think overall it was a good day, or perhaps I am a little biased and always towards the positive side. I somehow felt that today was filled with more “positive” energy than on other days. On facebook since early morning, people were wishing each other “Happy Valentine’s Day,” sending out words of love. On the streets and in my office, there were people receiving bouquets of flowers and looks of happiness filled the air. People were smiling everywhere.
On my way home, I unintentionally spied two guys staring each other in the face while a girl stood by. I think there was something going on there, but then it was going on for love. There’ll probably be lessons being learnt tonight about love and relationships, but then that’s all part of life. We go through experiences and we learn from them.
At this age, I’ve decided that going out for dinner on Valentine’s day isn’t really for me, even though I still love the notion of Valentine’s Day, but the Bangkok traffic and the crowds of people are just a bit too much for me. I prefer to stay quietly at home and keep in touch with those I care through phone calls instead. Time perhaps to make a short call to that good friend you haven’t spoken to in a long while. Oh how wonderful life is really, this is all one really needs: Knowing that one is loved and loved in return. Make everyday Valentine’s Day and everyday you can be just as happy 🙂
